 Friday, March 24, 2017

 

Although water jetpacks and flyboards have been around for the better part of 6 years now, the inner workings of hydroflight still baffles a lot of people. We have created this "How Hydroflight Works" diagram to help explain some of the general ideas. The system is the same for all manufacturers and devices. ZR Flyboard, FlyDive X-Board, water jetpacks, Jetovator Jetbikes, etc, etc., all operate on the same basic principles. A quick list of the concepts: 1.  ...(READ MORE)

New Jetovator Jetbike Products!

 Monday, October 10, 2016

 

While hydroflight manufacturers like X-Jets, Zapata and FlyDive battle for jetpack/jetboard supremacy, Jetovator has been building a strong following with its unique devices, notably the Jetovator jetbike. The Jetovator jetbike (commonly just referred to as "the Jetovator") has been around for a few years and has proven itself as a legitimate contender for the "best hydroflight" device. While the water jetpack first captured imaginations and brought about the birth of hydro ...(READ MORE)

Awesome suit? Check! Sweet helmet (AND VISOR!)? Check! Flames galore? Check! Radical body armor? Check! Easy to use and fun?...Not so much :/ This new video produced by our friends at Red Bull demonstrates yet another attempt to get airborne and fly through the skies. This new contraption is just the latest iteration of the now very old idea of strapping a fuel burning pack to yourself and attempting to fly it in a controlled manner.

Flyboard Mobile Game?...Never Thought I'd See That!

Jetpack America Newport Beach - Monday, January 02, 2017

We are pretty big fans of flyboarding here at Jetpack America. Between our equipment sales and rental operations, hydroflight is almost always on our minds. I have to admit, though, that the thought never crossed my mind that I would want a flyboard game on my phone, HA. The pic above is from Android OS game "Flyboard Water Stunt Simulator". This game appears to have been developed in India, where there are a lot of flyboard fans. I actually wonder which country loves flyboarding the most...we get website traffic, emails, web chats and phone calls from all over the world, including India, Chile, Angola, Malaysia, etc. etc. showing that there are fans of flyboarding and hydroflight across the globe.

 

Hydroflight sports are still in their infancy, with new products, designs and manufacturers constantly shifting the landscape. Flyboards, X-Boards, Jetblades, Jetbikes, etc. are all pushing the sport in new directions. So, while this game might not be the biggest production (see screenshot pics below :] ) and might not be getting a million dollar budget to become the next X-Box craze, it is still cool to see a fan of the sport make a game that they think people might enjoy. Every little bit of progress helps make hydroflight sports even more accessible and fan friendly. On that same note, we are very excited to see how many new fans are made when the Hydro-Fest Documentary get its television release later this month. Cheers to seeing the sport we love continue to grow!

 

Some Screen Shots from "Flyboard Water Stunt Simulator". Maybe if it gets a bunch of downloads, they'll put more money into version 2.0 :) Version 1.0 might have some accuracy flaws, ha. (Google Play Store)
